    so my brother is going to be my man of honor and i won't have any other bridesmaids, etc. i don't want to make him hold the flowers and i've heard that i can't bring them home from mexico anyway. which means i'm thinking about going without a bouquet. would this be strange? is there any other good reason to have one? it seems like just one more thing to worry about but maybe i'm missing something...?

    I think having a bouquet made me feel more bridal, but no I don't think you HAVE to have one, nor would it be weird if you didn't and I certainly wouldn't think your brother would want one, but you could give him a flower for his shirt.

      No you don't need one, but IMO I couldn't imagine getting married without one. I didn't have anyone standing up at our wedding, so during the ceremony I set my bouquet on the table that the judge stood behind.

        I personally want to carry a bouquet, when else will I get to in my life, never, and I love flowers. I do not think it would be weird if you did not have one, but really think about it, I would hate for you to miss out on something like that. I think your brother just needs a bout, and that is all, he should not carry a bouquet. lol

          I like what Tammy said in that you can just set them down or maybe have you mom hold them if she is sitting/standing right in front. The other option , if you truely don't want flowers, would be to carry a wonderful hand bag so you have something to do with your hands. That you could also set down or hand off. I love that your brother is standing up with you.

            You mean hold the flowers when you need your hands free right? Not, walk down the aisle holding a bouquet. I think you could just set it down. But, you don't need one. They come free with a lot of wedding packages though, so I think it's worth having.

              it's all about personal decision - you don't HAVE to do anything on your wedding day! you could wear a pair of old jeans and a tank top, no makeup, and you could still get married ... anywhere! it's all about how YOU want your day to be. with that said, if you want a bouquet, get one! if not, don't. if you're just worried about logistics, i just set mine on the table as well when i needed my hands (i had no attendants). personally, i wanted a bouquet (and it did come w/my package) - so i got one. but if i didn't want one - i don't think anyone would have even noticed.

                I agree - bouquet is not necessary but I LOVED mine! You could always do one of those pretty pomander balls...that was you can let in hang on your wrist while you're busy w/ rings and such.

                Here's an example with hydrandgeas - though I've seen them with other types of flowers as well. Roses are really pretty like this.

                It's on page 3, the first one on the 2nd row ( sorry I could't make it easier to find! lol!)

                  Good idea, then no one has to hold it, it will just hang on your wrist, I think that would be really pretty.
